Dirty Little Lies
(Dirty Little #2)
By: Cassie Cross
Releasing December 1, 2015
Ben Williams is a billionaire CEO at the top of his game. He’s a handsome, eligible bachelor who could have any woman…except the one he wants. Marisa Blake is the love of his life, the one who got away. Ben is willing to do whatever it takes to win her back.
Marisa is a young entrepreneur whose family is falling apart. Her parents are involved in a well-publicized scandal, and both her and her sister’s names are being dragged through the mud. Just when she thinks things can’t get any worse, Ben shows up at her doorstep. He was her college boyfriend, and a serial cheater.
Great sex is the only thing they ever had in common, and Marisa is determined to keep things physical. Still, she finds herself falling for him. Again.
When a former classmate blackmails Marisa with information that will destroy what’s left of her family, Marisa is forced to make a decision: sacrifice Ben to protect her sister, or forsake her family to follow her heart?
It’s not long before Marisa gets caught up in some dirty little lies…
Cassie Cross does not disappoint! Ben and Marisa were made for each other. I loved how both characters were independent, yet they made each other better. I also liked how Caleb and Mia made appearances. I loved them from the first book. *It is a stand-alone book.*
So basically Ben is a terrible guy who turned a new leaf. He became more responsible, he matured, and he stopped cheating on Marisa.
Marisa has been given the choice of giving him a second chance, after he has broken her heart many times. They go very well together, and I am so glad at the way it turned out. Their scenes were steamy, and you could just fall in love with them.
I definitely commend Marisa for doing what she thought was right, then asking for help, when she realized it wasn’t right. I’m sure that was not an easy thing to do, but she did it.
However, one thing that did bother me was how easily Marisa forgave him. Especially knowing the reason why she finally called it quits that last time. I have been with a serial cheater, and there is no way in hell I would forgive him that easily and move on. Second chances are great, but I feel like she gave in wayyy to easily.
Cross has a way of drawing you in, and keeping you hooked up until that very last sentence. I would definitely enjoy reading more books written by her! Here’s to hoping there will be a third book; this time, hopefully, it will be about Oliver. I’d love to know more about him!
Cassie Cross is a Maryland native and a romantic at heart, who lives outside of Baltimore with her two dogs and a closet full of shoes. Cassie’s fondness for swoon-worthy men and strong women are the inspiration for most of her stories, and when she’s not busy writing a book, you’ll probably find her eating takeout and indulging in her love of 80′s sitcoms.

**Along with this book, I was also gifted Dirty Little Secrets, the first book in the series. Be sure to keep an eye out for my review of that as well! I actually read it before reading this one, but was not able to post my review in time. Also note, both books can be read as stand-alones; they just have the characters make appearances.
Thank you for hosting!
